“A fringe occupation only ten years ago, culinary photography has become the main activity of a growing number of photographers across the world – professionals of light, who depict our plates and food in such a way that our tastes, dietary habits and culinary choices are elevatedto the sublime. They have found in cuisine a new arena in which to express themselves as artists, with distinct codes, references and talents.

[…] This new creative niche now boasts artists of its own, who weave together discipline, humour, reflection, sensitivity and emotion and show us the way to world of dreaminess, gossamer light and colour. It shows that each culinary photographer has a definite and distinctive point of view. They sign their shots in the same way as painters signed their works.” (Jean-Pierre PJ Stephan, curator)

For this exhibit, pictures of the 2009, 2010, 2011 editions of the International Festival of Culinary Photography were selected to tell you this fine lip-smacking tale…

The exhibition is held in the framework of the Francophonie international week.

Opening on 30 March 2017 from 12.30pm to 2.30pm
with Jean-Pierre PJ Stephan, curator
